I have a silver...

I have a silver and steel mesh purse and coin purse. The purse says made in Germany and is engraved to "Aimee from Mrs. George Black, Dawson Yukon."I have found that Martha Louise Black was married to George in 1904.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No Thanks
